    I grew up in Brown County and didn't hear the please thing much. So when I was in my 20s working at UDF, a customer ordered a hot fudge sundae and I asked her if she wanted nuts on it. Se said please, so I proceeded to put the nuts on it. She then said that she didn't want nuts on her sundae and I was confused because I assumed by saying please she was saying yes, and rather politely.

    Born and raised in Cincinnati and we were taught to say "please" if we did not understand what the person said. In Texas you either get "what" or "huh".

    I've gotten in the bad habit of saying, "Come again?"

    Whether that's annoying or not depends on the circumstance lol...

    The thread is over three year's old, so I'm sure I pointed this out before. But I absolutely hate the word incentivize.

    No you provide incentives, you do not incentivize. I have promised any person who's not bigger than me a punch in the nose if they use the word incentivize.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    All corporate buzzwords.

    Especially "leverage" used as a verb.

    Any non verb used as a verb tends to annoy the daylights out of me.

    "Drew Stubbs strikes out too much."

    Thank you, Captain Obvious. Even when he's playing well, people still hang on to that, and that's when it really bothers me.

    "(wherever)-bound" whenever talking about going on a trip somewhere. I've noticed like everyone is saying that now, and I have no idea where they picked up on it from.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.
